If you’re suffering from blackheads, then it’s really important that you read this article and learn to get rid of them. It’s doubly important with blackheads because they are often a signal that you are about to experience a full acne outbreak.
So now I’m going to show you how to stop acne in it’s tracks by removing your blackheads and cleansing your skin. It’s far better to deal with the small problem of blackheads now, rather then attempting to get rid of acne later.
The first thing that you need to do, is to get all the dirt and muck off your hands. So give them a very good wash with some warm water and lots of soap. Then move on to giving your face the same treatment. But be gentle over the infected area so that it doesn’t become inflamed. Then finish off by cleansing your face with a water soluble cleanser.
Now that your pores are all washed out and your heads are clean. You need to place a clay mask on so that you face gets rid of all that oil which is most likely the cause of your blackheads. Once this has been on for a good 5 minutes or so, move on to getting some clean tissue to help clean up your face and remove anymore excess oils.
Now that you have used the mask, your skin will be far cleaner and the lack of oil will allow your pores to clean themselves out. But if you just stop here, then in a week or two your face will build up oil again and you’ll have to repeat the last step. So go and visit your dermatologist and inquire about some vitamin pills that you can take to keep your skin type as healthy as possible.
By now, you should have everything you need to remove your blackheads. But if for some reason you can’t manage to get a clay mask or you’d just like to try something else, you can use hot steam as a kind of alternative. It isn’t as effective but by filling up a basin full of hot water and then standing over it, you’ll find that it does soften up your skin. You can also use exfoliant and then bandage it up for a night.
